Breast Enlargement UK

The most prevalent procedures in UK cosmetic surgery today are cosmetic breast enlargements or ‘boob jobs’ – popular names for mammoplasty or breast augmentation. Designed to restore breast fullness, to reshape, enhance and enlarge breasts, the procedure involves the insertion of breast implants behind the existing breast tissue. They consist of a shaped outer shell and a filling; usually silicone or sometimes saline.


The reasons for considering this operation are many. Having developed, breasts may fluctuate in size especially after pregnancy, nursing or in response to weight changes. You may find yourself dissatisfied with your breast size or symmetry; perhaps natural changes have left them less full than after child birth and nursing. Whatever the cause, breast enlargement is the procedure to increase breast size, lifting confidence and restoring shapely contours. With Liberate Cosmetic Surgery you may look forward to having the breasts you have always wanted and receiving the support and care that you deserve.  


There are many aspects to making an informed decision about breast augmentation surgery, not least, non-surgical breast enlargement options. However, if you are in good health and desire an enhanced shape, then this may be the right time to come and discuss your wishes and expectations with one of our highly trained Liberate surgeons

During consultation the surgeon assesses your personal needs and offers advice and information. All our breast enlargement surgeons are experienced and qualified members of BAAPS and/or BAPRAS and will help you to form realistic goals, inform you of potential side effects and enable you to decide what is right for you.  Choices include the type of implants, their shape and size, how they will affect your body shape and where the implants will be positioned. Your breast enlargement surgeon will explain the benefits and risks of each choice.


Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure, and in the UK it is generally carried out effectively and safely. Complications are possible and there are inherent risks associated with all surgery; which your surgeon will explain.  During surgery the implants are inserted into the breast, either behind the breast tissue or behind the chest muscles on which the breast lies. Incisions are often made in the fold underneath the breast, or sometimes around the areola or near the armpit.

Your surgeon is with you from the consultation throughout the entire procedure and for as long as needed after the surgery. He or she will advise you and plan your care.  

Breast enlargement prices may vary: they are built from surgeon’s and anaesthetist’s fees as well as hospital costs.


Breast enhancement surgery is performed under general anaesthetic and takes between one and two hours.  The surgeon will makes incisions, the size and position of which depend on where the implant is to be placed; he or she will make a space for the implant before inserting it. The wound is closed with stitches, which may be dissolvable.  The breasts are wrapped in a supportive dressing and fine tubes attached to allow fluids to drain.


You can expect second to none aftercare from advice on breast augmentation recovery right through to a return to normal activity.  You will need to rest whilst the anaesthetic effects pass. After the operation you may feel some discomfort, some swelling and bruising. These symptoms may last a few weeks and your surgeon will prescribe medicines as appropriate.  Stitches are removed after one or two weeks. A post-operative consultation is arranged with your surgeon to assess the procedure and your recovery and to give you the opportunity of raising any questions. Scars fade over the course of about twelve months.

The Liberate Process
Book your consultation

Once you have chosen your surgeon, there are a number of ways to make contact and arrange your initial consultation.

You can send your questions via the contact us page or email us directly here and a member of the Liberate team will contact you to answer any questions you may have and book your appointment.

Meet your surgeon

The next step is to meet the surgeon of your choice. It is likely he/ she consults at two or three different hospitals; we can help you determine which location would be most convenient for you.

During an initial consultation, your surgeon will discuss with you your concerns and examine you to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for surgery.

He/ She will comprehensively explain what is involved in your procedure and discuss any possible risks associated with the procedure. This will be your first chance to ask all those questions!

Be sure to ask to see the surgeon’s before and after photographs. He/ She will be able to show you photographs of patients in a similar situation to yourself. This can be very useful for you to view the surgeon’s previous results to get an idea of what can be achieved.

Second consultation

Following your initial consultation, your surgeon will ask you to take time to think over all the information you have been given and talk it over with your friends and family. It is best practice for the surgeon to invite you back for a second consultation before you go ahead with any surgery.

This is a good opportunity to ask any questions that may have arisen since your first appointment. The surgeon will go through the procedure in more detail and ensure you have realistic expectations of the results possible.


When all your questions and concerns have been answered, the surgeon’s secretary will arrange a convenient date for your surgery. Try to avoid any important dates and events which may clash with your recovery period.

Each patient is different and it is difficult to predict how long your recovery will take. If you have young children make sure you have appropriate child care in place in order for you to recuperate and relax at home without having to look after the children.

After care

With Liberate surgeons, you can rest assured that you will be looked after: before, during, following your surgery and beyond.

All Liberate surgeons make it a priority to see you following your surgery and are available for follow-up appointments.

You’ll be seen by the surgeon who operated on you – not a nurse or a different surgeon. It’s important to us that you see the surgeon you know already.

At Liberate, aftercare is for life.
